Making Spring Happen

Our birds arrived from Jen (for the Mud Puddles swap) just barely ahead of the snow.  I was hoping they might magically flap their wings and drive off the white flakes, but no such luck.  We still got 3 or 4 fresh inches.

To make up for the lack of green outside, though, I bought a tiny pot of shamrocks at Trader Joe's to celebrate the first of March.  Along with a box of pastel colored macarons, it was as close to making spring happen as I could get.
